Becks will not be Fabio’s successor.
David Beckham has no plans to succeed Fabio Capello as England manager and the midfielder also thinks that Manchester United will provide Wayne Rooney with vital support during a difficult period in his life.
LA Galaxy’s Beckham has been installed among a list of possible candidates to become the next Three Lions boss after Capello announced that he would be leaving the role following Euro 2012.
The former United and Real Madrid star is a hero to England fans, having earned 115 caps to date, and his contract in America will have expired when Capello stands down.
Beckham has been told by the Italian that he does not feature in his plans for Euro 2012 as a player, although the door is also not complete closed, and his career will now hinge on his return from Achilles surgery.
The injury cost Beckham a playing place at this summer’s World Cup finals and he had to make do with a position in Capello’s backroom staff, but the 35-year-old has no immediate plans to take up a permanent international coaching role.
He joked to Sky Sports News when questioned on the subject: “I wouldn’t put any money on that.
“The manager has been in charge for a few years now and he obviously feels that it is the right time to step down in a couple of years.
“And hopefully he ends by winning the European Championship.” (Sky Sports)
So there you have it. For some reason, someone at Sky Sports News decided to ask David Beckham if he fancies being the next England manager, he joked in reply and hey presto we have a news story. It seems unlikely Becks will go into management at any point if you ask me, perhaps a career in films and an Oscar await?
